Universal Pictures has released 16 stunning posters for RZA’s kung-fu film The Man with the Iron Fists. The film takes place in feudal China and centers on a small village’s weapon-maker who must defend its people. If the movie is half as good as these posters, it will be a success. Their styles ranges from 80s punk flyers, classic art, retro Asian cinema posters, and more. I wouldn’t mind having a couple of these on my wall provided A) I liked the movie; and B) I had any wall space left.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. The film stars RZA, Russell Crowe, Cung Le, Lucy Liu, Byron Mann, Rick Yune, David Bautista, and Jamie Chung. The Man with the Iron Fists opens November 2nd.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Man with the Iron Fists:
Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director, co-writer and leading man, RZA–alongside an exciting international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu–tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold. Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
